"Calling for Vanished Faces" is a two CD retrospective of the impossible-to-classify British group Current 93. It's very much in the same vein as their double disc retrospective "Emblems," released in 1993 to mark their tenth anniversary. "Calling..." has very few tracks in common with "Emblems," though there is some crossover. It's a wonderful album to buy even if you already own "Emblems." For the Current 93 compleatist, there are only a few minutes of completely new material, but for everyone else, this release covers over fifteen years of material by one of the most intelligent, literate, and innovative groups out there. Beginning with the harsh apocalyptic noise of the early years, through the punkish folk music of the mid- to late-'80s, through the revelatory acoustic music of the early '90s and the gentle but still deeply affecting tone of the group's past few years, this two-disc set is a revelation for fans and newcomers alike.

Ahhh, apocalyptic folk music with ambient industrial atmospheres, and the awe-inspiring voice and lyrics of David Tibet, which soar from gnostic Christian flights of glory to Thelemic quests for endless liberty to harrowing explorations of the crushing weight of earth's torments.

While listening to this album I go through the full gamut of emotions: Laughing out loud, scared, confused, tears, awe, and joy. And back again. For me, this album is the best all around place to enter Current 93's "sick, sick, sick" world. "Outsider" music at its finest. . . . Gentle psychopaths of the world should love it.

One of the best anthology recordings I've ever heard. Not only are the individual tracks great, but the sequencing of the tracks is flawless with many tracks carefully bleeding into the next one. There are whole worlds contained within these 2 discs.
A perfect place to start getting into one of the most potent U.K. esoteric bands ever. Don't miss it.

This album serves as a great introduction to Current 93...in fact, it's all you really need. You might find the first CD disturbing, or perhaps irritating, but it segways nicely into the second disk. If you listen to disk 2 with an open mind, the heart-wrenching vocals and melodies will blow you away. Nothing can top Bloodstreamruns and The Great Bloody and Bruised Veil of the World.
